My aqua obsession

I'm sure everyone has that amazing vintage truck or car that they're in love with. You know that one that sits parked permanently somewhere & you practically give yourself a strained neck ogling it every time you drive past in your lame, non-vintage, but sensible vehicle. {Or is that just me?}

Well, this awesome aqua truck is my dreamboat! While my {brave} friend Kat & I were galavanting around with her camera I mentioned my obession with love for the fabulous Ford. She screeched to a halt when I pointed it out & pulled in. She & I marched up to the open shop door of the assumed owner. {Though I may have been sheepishly trailing a step or two behind her being of a more shy nature.πŸ˜†} We asked permission to take pics by the vintage vehicle {slightly shouting to make up for the fact that they were wearing earplugs for their work} & they had no problem with it. They probably thought we were nuts, but oh well. πŸ˜‰ I've gotten a bit used to that.

My outfit matched just too perfectly!
I made my dress from a vintage sheet which I purchased from The Lavender Housewife. My aqua Hunter wellies were a Christmas gift from Momma & Dad. {Pro tip: If you wear women's size 7 1/2 shoe you can fit into the kids size 5 Hunter wellies!}

Well now, you know you have an obession with a color when you have a sewing machine that color. πŸ˜† I think Astrid rather enjoyed stitching up this frock. πŸ˜‰

Needless to say I was so excited that smiling was not a problem at all for these pics.

The only thing that could've made this experience better was if they had told me to just go ahead & take the truck home with me. πŸ˜‰ Hey, I can dream can't I?!

And dream I do.

This post is the last of my wonderful Kat photos so far. But never fear we have plans. Let's just say they involve my nieces.  *dances like a dork with excitement*

I plan to take part in Me Made May {#mmmay} this lovely month as well so that should provide plenty of fodder for my crafty shenanigans.

  1. you're absolutely adorable and loving the pretty dress you made!

  2. That aqua vintage truck was meant just for you. I have a thing for AQUA too, it's such a cool color. You look so cute in this flowered dress, and how wonderful that you made it! What a talent it is to sew. My mom sewed many of my clothes growing up. Love these pictures, they're great.

    Happy May!


  3. Oh, you looks adorable, my friend! And the truck is SO YOU! Maybe someday it will be up for sale :)

    Thanks for sharing such a delightful post with us. Hugs to you!
